Horford (finger) indicated Monday that there's "still some question" surrounding his status for Game 2 against the Nets on Wednesday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Horford dislocated his finger in Game 1, so it's really no surprise that there is question regarding his status. The team will likely provide an update at some point closer to the game based on his progress over the next couple days, but his status remains up in the air at this point.

Horford was taken to the locker room during the third quarter, but he was later able to return for the final six minutes of the game. X-rays on the the finger came back negative, and Horford finished his night with 10 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a block and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Horford will not play Sunday to rest, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

With the top seed in the East firmly in hand, the Hawks have little to play for, and could rest all their starters for the rest of the season if they want to. If you're planning on using any Hawks in fantasy for the rest of the season, you'll need to monitor the team status up until tip off to be sure nobody is getting rested.
